About this Film

JFF 2016 - A German Life

ODEON says...
Brunhilde Pomsel joined the Nazi party in 1942 not because of strong conviction but because it allowed her to take a lucrative job as the secretary of Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi minister for propaganda. She was hardly an antisemite but merely an ordinary citizen with little interest in politics. 

Now 105, Pomsel gives a mesmerising account of the war years. Though she denies any wrongdoing, she has been wrestling with a persistent sense of guilt ever since the war ended. 

A remarkably powerful documentary, 'A German Life' explores both the near inevitable state of becoming silent accomplices that so many Germans found themselves in during the war, and the inner workings of the Nazi propaganda machine.
